Department 13 counter-drone on display


Wednesday, 09 November, 2016

The MESMER counter-drone solution will be demonstrated by Department 13 to defence, security and law enforcement personnel.

The demonstration will include a non-kinetic mitigation of multiple unmanned aerial systems (UAS), performed simultaneously.

MESMER can detect, identify and mitigate either hostile or nuisance drones across a range of national security, defence or commercial applications. It uses patented protocol manipulation technology to take over the drone when it flies into a defined air space. Once the operator has control of the drone the threat can be mitigated in a way that is not dangerous to personnel or infrastructure in the area.

The demonstration will take place at the Metricon Stadium in Carrara, the flagship venue for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Additional demonstrations will be held at the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) in Canberra. These demonstrations are part of the Counter Non-Traditional Threats Conference and Exhibition at UNSW Canberra and are open to conference delegates, as well as non-registered conference attendees.

“On the back of our successful Sydney demonstration, we look forward to showcasing our MESMER counter-drone technology to potential defence and security customers representing a number of federal and state government agencies,” said Department 13 CEO Jonathan Hunter.

“We will showcase a non-kinetic mitigation of multiple drones utilising our MESMER solution at the primary venue for the 2018 Commonwealth Gates on the Gold Coast, which represents the sort of use-case scenario which could be rolled out by Department 13 globally.”

The demonstrations will feature the current capabilities of the MESMER technology, highlight recent trial successes and present the future technology roadmap.
